It’s a new day for Jennifer Hudson! The weight watchers spokeswoman opened up her very own weight loss center in the South Side of Chicago Tuesday.The center is appropriately called, ‘the Jennifer Hudson Weight Watchers Center’.
The singer/actress and native of Chicago who, herself, lost 80 pounds on the program, says,
“I never thought I would make it to have my own center,” said Hudson, who wore a fitted, ruffled black dress and high-heeled studded black boots. “I’m so honored to be here and see this day.”
Weight Watchers had pledged to donate a portion of the center’s revenue to a foundation that Hudson co-founded in honor of her late nephew, Julian King.
Her nephew along with her mother and brother were gunned down by her sister’s former boyfriend back in 2008.
“I love to target children, because that’s the thing that makes a difference,” Hudson said. “We hope to do the same thing and start here at home in Chicago with health, with education, with dreams.”
